    Recently I spotted a Sites.google.com address ranking for very competitive keywords. I am wondering if there are similar cases in other niches?

    That's called parasite SEO. They leveraged the authority of the root domain (google.com) to rank. To see more examples, enter any website that lets you publish your own articles into the search field of Semrush.com and click search. I'm talking about sites like wordpress.com, buzzfeed.com...

    Today I saw a docs.google page rank 1 for a very competitive keyword. Definitely sparked a few ideas for me. I'm starting to see those more and more. I checked the backlink profile and it had a few SAPE links on some hacked sites. I stay clear away from SAPE but I'm sure a few PBN links would do the trick.

    Guys thanks for bumping the thread but if ask specifically about sites.google websites. The example I am watchnig is ranking on competitive niches 100k-9mm monthly searches without backlinks. Parasites are not working so well anymore especially without link building.

    Here is the url:
    This site is targeted for pretty much keywords like OP said, Let me check if this site got backlinks or not. It is something interesting, I'm also trying to rank "blogspot" for health niche.
